    Should you prepare earlier?
    It's really exagerated in the Serena William's backhand drill commercial on TV, but you do the opposite and wait till the last possible moment.

    Yep, I do prepare late(r) on the FH compared to the backhand. Thanks for reminding me (again)! :)

    Well my Sony Tennis Sensor fell apart, so these are the last videos with data that I'll have for a while...

    Some light drills, since I had just donated blood a few days ago, not anticipating the MASSIVE effect on stamina it could have on the court. :eek:

    Forehand, taken from 3 angles:



    Switched to a Wilson RF97 which smoothed out the swing immensely. Loooooove the plow. And perhaps the weight has forced me to really loosen up the grip, leading to a nice release at contact:



    Backhand- topspin, slice, drop shot:



    Started practicing touch volleys, which was pretty fun! I may do this more often.
